First, CO2 is NOT deadly above 3% or you'd asphyxiate before you could exhale. Hint:  You exhale 4% CO2 with every breath.

I'll give you that, it should have read 30% but regardless, as far as I'm aware cognitive issues can be verified in human beings beyond 1-2% and since we are talking planetary scale it's not something people should be ignoring unless the idea is to strive towards a Homer Simpson world. Sometimes I get the impression that many on this forum would like nothing less.

As for ignorance, CO2 is at about 0.04%. The current annual average increase in CO2 PPM for the last 10 years (about 2.5 PPM) is enough to increase the concentration by more than 0.02% on top of what we already have within less than a century and I don't see much reason to expect this to fall any time soon, in fact it'll almost certainly continue rising the way things are progressing. The "supposed increase" as you put it is more or less what I said above, I'm not counting the rate of what was 200 years ago since it is irrelevant to the rate of PPM increase today. In that respect, it's not a case of ignorance on my side and neither was the previous value I gave which was basically a typo.

The numbers, well if you want to dispute them you can but you are just some random person on a commenting website much like the rest of us so your position in regard to numbers that are being used across the globe by many, many people with quite high levels of education means next to nothing.

It's also worth mentioning that there's a lot more to it than just the CO2 concentration, any person that considers himself or herself not to be ignorant shouldn't be dismissing the issue of AGW. In my experience, only selfish and/or ignorant people tend to dismiss it as a "hoax" or a non-issue. Those that think they and theirs won't be affected personally by said issue.

In other words, how much of the 0.000401 can we lay at the feet of mankind? 

Talking of ignorance, apparently it's possible to technically track anthropogenic CO2 and it has been possible for almost half a century. Maybe you should look into that assuming you aren't already aware of it. If you are, then it doesn't paint you in the best of light and your opinion on the matter from my perspective drops to about 0.

They are beautiful though! I once had a Golden Retriever that would bring me wildlife. He was a beaut too. I have loved dogs and grieved over their deaths more than people. 

I've got a 7 month old cocker spaniel, she's crazy and eats everything and anything but is incredibly cute and loving at the same time.

Im afraid I have to agree with you, I now have Basset Hounds, best dogs I have experienced, and your right letting go is hard, I also take it harder when they go, unconditional love is something humans do not posses.

Saying "I'm going out to smoke a fag" might get you some serious FBI attention but it's still perfectly acceptable here 😆

 

Its common in Britain to ask if they have any fags behind the bar, meaning do you sell cigarettes, it always raised eyebrows in Texas, may get you jailed now... or Shot

You can't beat wanker and bellend sometimes.

There is even a 'beat/bellend' joke there somewhere ... 

And indeed for wanker ...

How did you wankers get from suffocating on exhaled CO2 to dogs to fags behind the bar to bellends?

Usually, after your normal alien cow abduction, the twits simply discard said cow, alive or deceased, from a great height. The deformation and resulting crater are obvious and telling.

Over to you @James Regan
